This sounds like a terrific opportunity:
LABA: The National Laboratory for New Jewish Culture at the 14th Street Y and the Jewish Plays Project are seeking five collaborative teams of theater artists for a three-week pilot residency program. Modeled on the Space residency at Mabou Mines (and to some extend ART-NY’s Creative Spaces Grant), the residency is designed to give selected artists time, space and support to create vibrant new work that extends the Jewish conversation through cutting-edge theater forms and techniques….Selected artists will also participate in the revolutionary artists’ Beit Midrash process developed at LABA, learning how ancient texts can inspire and inform their artistry.
There’s a lot to absorb on the website (scroll down) regarding eligibility and the application process, so be forewarned. But there’s NO FEE to apply. Proposals are due by 6 p.m. on March 15. Good luck!
